I cannot recommend Aoife highly enough. As the bride, I was very pleased with my make up trial so I knew from there that I would be delighted with my wedding make up. Aoife made the whole process in the run up to the wedding very easy. On the wedding day itself, Aoife helped make the morning very relaxed and easy and was a true professional. Aoife provided make up services for myself, 2 bridesmaids and my mum. Everyone’s make up was stunning and Aoife knew exactly what look and products suited everyone. It also lasted the entire night for the whole bridal party. I received many compliments on my make up throughout the day. Thanks again to Aoife for helping to make our day extra special and providing such a brilliant service.

Aoife is absolutely amazing and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough! From the moment I met her at my trial I felt so at ease and knew I was in good hands! She is an absolute breath of fresh air and so much fun! The morning of my wedding was so incredibly special, my mum, my sisters and I had the most wonderful fun morning getting our glam done by Aoife! I keep getting comments about how amazing I looked from friends and family to this day! Aoife is an amazing make up artist and so professional - I felt like a movie star for the day! I will treasure those memories for a life time! Thank you Aoife!

Aoife was just amazing. I loved my makeup and my two bridesmaids looked fabulous too. Aoife used really good quality makeup and my wedding makeup stayed dewey and fresh and she even covered up a scar on my face beautifully and it was easy to remove the makeup the next day too. she has great tips and advice and is very good to deal with. Aoife is a really talented and versatile makeup artist with a lovely personality. I did a trial makeup session with Aoife before the wedding and it was so helpful. I felt beautiful after the trial and my makeup looked even better on the wedding day, it was elegant but with a bit of glamour gorgeous lashes, she used a lovely blush and accentuated the colour I wanted to bring out in my eyes and she totally got the couture look I had in mind. I totally recommend her to any bride, she will make you look stunning, a more beautiful version of yourself so you feel amazing in your own skin, she’s so good. Thank you so,so much Aoife.

Struggling to find words that will explain how outstanding Aoife is. Originally booked in with her for December 2020 but had to postpone our wedding with Covid. Aoife has always been really responsive and moved to our new date with ease. She went above and beyond to help me find a replacement hair stylist (which she did in a couple of hours!) What makes Aoife really special - besides her make up artist skills - is the air of calm she brings, both in the run-up to, and on the morning of the wedding. She was a joy to have around on the morning, and gave me some great tips on what to eat/when to eat - things you never think about until the morning of the wedding! My make up was flawless and my mom, who was nervous about her make up, looked fantastic and was so happy. I could not recommend Aoife enough.

Couldn't recommend Aoife enough, she is so welcoming and knows her stuff inside out. I'm useless about what I want or different styles but Aoife knew exactly how to tease this information out of me and I was delighted with my makeup on the day. It lasted all day and night and it was one of the hottest days of the year!
Response from Aoife Crossan Makeup
Thank you so much! It was such a pleasure to look after you and delighted with your photos. The make up looked so perfect on you! Wishing you all the health and happiness xxxx

I could not recommend Aoife more to any future brides. In the run up to the wedding she gave me lots of tips and advice and we went over my look in great detail. On the morning she was such a calming presence in the room when we were getting ready and made sure everyone left happy. She nailed the natural but glam look I asked for and I wish she could do my make up everyday!

Aoife is not only a very talented make up artist but also a real pleasure to deal with. I was so thrilled with my finished bridal look. So many gorgeous compliments on the entire bridal party makeup. She absolutely nailed it. She uses only the best makeup products and was so accommodating in making sure everyone was happy on the day. A complete pleasure to deal with from initial enquiry to the wedding day. Thank you again Aoife x

I cannot recommend Aoife highly enough! From when she first arrived in the morning, she was so calm and relaxed which definitely helped to keep me sane! She managed to do make-up for myself, my mum and 3 bridesmaids without anyone feeling rushed and yet also keeping to our time schedule so everything ran like clockwork. And the results...just wow! This woman is a magician with a make-up brush! We all looked fab, right through til the early hours, with lots of photos to prove it. Thank you Aoife for making our wedding day even better!
Response from Aoife Crossan Makeup

Aoife was amazing, so friendly and extremely talented. She is very professional and listens to your wishes. I was absolutely thrilled with my make up on the day of my wedding. It was lovely having Aoife there on the morning, a part of all the build up and prep for the bridesmaid and mums too.

I absolutely loved my wedding day make up! The look was flawless. My skin looked so fresh and youthful, no lines, no sign of tiredness but still looked like myself. I adored the eye make up Aoife used. She created such a glam look using tones that made the blue in my eye pop. And again it stayed perfect didn’t smudge, crease or move on the day. The look stayed perfect until the early hours of the next morning!
Response from Aoife Crossan Makeup
Edel, Happy Anniversary! What a year! Looking forward to seeing you for more glam soon and thank you for always being so supportive with Kind words. See you soon, Aoife xx
